My wife and I are about to relocate from SF to the Boston area. We were spoiled by our last neighborhood in Oakland, where we lived a minute's walk from a family-run butcher shop, an artisan bakery, and a grocery store specializing in quality produce (not to mention the wine shop, chocolate shop...). Did I mention we were spoiled?
In any case, we are currently looking at apartments in Cambridge and Somerville, within easy walking distance to the red line. With that restriction, are there any good markets that carry high quality organic produce, naturally-raised meat, local dairy, etc? Other than farmers markets, which are easy enough to locate, what are the best grocery sources for spoiled California foodies in the above-mentioned areas?
Thanks in advance for tips, and we are excited to spend the next few years exploring the chow-worthy secrets of Boston!
